Why fundraise for us? Last year it cost over £7.9 million to run all hospice services, including patient, fundraising and support services – equating to over £22,000 per day. Over £4.6 million was raised through voluntary donations alone. This requires ongoing commitment, energy and passion from the community - support we just couldn’t do without. For some people facing the end of life it’s the small things than can make the biggest difference, like having a special family meal or seeing a beloved pet. Our vital work is filled with moments that make people smile during a time that’s difficult for everyone. Over two thirds of hospice funding comes from voluntary donations and every penny counts. The care we provide is at no cost to our patients or their families. However, it does require extensive, on-going fundraising support. We need you to take part in fundraising events to raise the vital funds we need.
